    I picked up another GTL in January, and installed a Bushtec in place of the DMC hitch I had on my previous K16. For the electrical, you can also get an isolator from Bushtec, or just purchase an...

    I put the sensor at ~4-5 (as you face the changer), start the tire over the rim at 8-9, the tire is off by the time the bar gets to 2-3. Pretty easy to avoid running the bar over the sensor package....

    Yep -- I have one of the <500 R100M Mystics brought into the US in '94-'95. That means I have, well, a '94 R100R with hard-to-find tail, sidecover, seat and instrument cluster pieces.

    The R100CS, R100RS and R100RT were available in 1984 with the white paint/Last Edition graphics.

    None -- when stopped (and other preconditions are met, such as oil temp above a threshold) it will show either the "not ready" dashes or the check mark.

    First, there is an oil temp read-out in the RID of every R12 of which I'm aware.

    I'm not one of the "everyone" -- unless you have a rod knock, there's no reason to unbolt them, as the crank & bearings go a long time if not oil-starved. And of course, Capt. Murphy sez that if you...
